The month of love has come to an end.
Since Christmas, I’ve had to buy a few new things to wear at the office and also I started using some of my Christmas gifts. Let’s get into it!
If you haven’t been able to tell by this picture, I loves me a bold print and pattern. If it’s colourful as well, even better!
I adore my pop art/anime/comic strip scarf. I’ve been wearing it with purple skinny jeans and a plain white t-shirt. Unfortunately, when you’re wearing the scarf, you can’t really see the pop art so clearly, but hey, I know it’s there and I love it. I got the scarf as a Christmas gift from Mr. Price. I have no idea how much it costs, but Mr. Price’s scarves go anything between R25 to R70.
Next up is my jellybean printed pencil skirt, also from Mr. Price (R70). My mom bought me this about a week ago and I’m going to wear it to work today. I love jellybeans, so I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this skirt. So fun! Maybe I’ll be Katy Perry in her California Girls music video for Halloween and wear this. 😉
Next we have my lips/mouth printed shirt (Mr. Price R60). I folded it up for the purpose of the photo, because the table I lay everything out on isn’t massive so I have limited space. The arms are cut off, so it’s perfect for summer and you could also wear it to the office. Well, I wouldn’t advice anyone to wear this if you work in a very stuffy, corporate office, but if your work environment is more chilled, then go for it! I’ve been seeing the mouth/lips print everywhere.
The floral shorts are my new favourite shorts. My mom also spoiled me with these. They were on sale at Forever New for R300. They were initially R500. Score! Unfortunately, the summer is almost over here and autumn is definitely in the air so I won’t be able to wear these much longer.
I wore my previous pair of pewter pumps to death so when I saw these (in the pic above) at Woolworths (R160), I snapped them up. At first, they were terribly uncomfortable and really hurt my feet, but now that they’ve been worn in they’re fine. They go with everything and they’re snazzy enough to wear to work or when you’re going out with friends.
I have included The Body Shop’s Dreams in my perfume collection before, but I got a new bottle for Valentine’s Day. It smells absolutely gorgeous. I think this bottle is the 3rd one I’m going to use. This perfume is so good for every day or even special occasions, and it’s affordable.
L’Oreal Even Perfect Facial Foam is amazing. I’ve reviewed it before as well. I use this to wash my face in the mornings and to be honest, it really does do an amazing job at evening out your skin tone. Love!
Who doesn’t love OPI nail polish? Their ranges of nail colour collections are just so cute! This one is Strawberry Margarita and I’ve been wearing it non stop for two weeks now. It’s such a vibrant, bright pink. Perfect for summer. The name also makes me want to rush out and get a cocktail. Who’s with me?!
Beauty South Africa and Maybelline South Africa sent me the pretty lavender container of powder up there to review for Beauty South Africa’s website so I can’t say much about the product just yet apart from the fact that I really like it and the packaging is very pretty.
Labello Lip Butter is my current favourite lip balm. It’s extremely moisturizing and perfect if you have very dry, chapped lips. The smell is also heavenly, just like fresh raspberries. Read my review here.
OBVIOUSLY Essence Eye Sorbet (R40) is on my list of favourites. I’ve been wearing it almost every day since I first bought it a few weeks ago. Read why here.
Oh how I love my Cookie and Cupcake Decorating Kit. It’s extremely handy. I also really love my kitchen timer that’s shaped like a pink ice cream (Mr. Price Home, R15). Adorable!
If you’re on the market for a good book about the history of shoes, give Rachelle Bergstein’s book a go. I’ve learnt so many interesting things about the various eras she covers, as well as the history of famous shoe designers.
Tsk tsk Zuri… I really had terrible service. I bought a product from there, wanted to exchange it, had to go back three times to the same shop and every single time the manager wasn’t there, and on the fourth time when the manager was actually there, I had to fight with the woman to exchange my things. Not cool.
What a long post! But I sincerely enjoyed sharing these things with you.
I hope March is a good month!
